First Lady To Travel To All The Nations In The World, Here’s The Story Of Cassandra De Pecol

Remember, some time back we told you about Cassandra De Pecol, a 27-year-old American woman who was on the mission to become a true Cosmopolitan by visiting all the countries in the world?
Well guess what, she just did! And very soon she is going to have her name registered in the Guiness Book of World Records. At this point, I am pretty sure you want to know more about her, so just scroll down.

Cassandra De Pecol became the first woman ever to travel all 193 Soverign nations recognised by the UN (plus Taiwan, Palestine and Kosovo) in a record time of 18 months and 26 days. She named her journey, ‘Expedition 196’.

De Pecol started her expedition on 24 July 2015 and finished it on 2 February 2017.

Cassandra also became the fastest person to travel all the nations, breaking the record previously held by Yili Liu, who did it in 39 months and 6 days.

She spent an average of 2 to 5 days in every nation.

She funded her trip with sponsorships and her own savings which costed about $198,000 (₹ 1.32 Crore).
